2017 FIAT 500e Overview (See Available Styles)

  • All-electric-powered version of the 500
  • Total driving range of 84 miles
  • Standard pedestrian warning system
The 2017 FIAT 500e is an all-electric version of the regular 500. It competes with the Ford Focus Electric, BMW i3, and Nissan LEAF. At the time of this writing, it is being sold in California and Oregon only.

The 500e has its own unique styling that separates it from its gas-powered counterpart. Most noticeably, the lower fascia opts for a more reserved look with its grater-mesh pattern. Standard features include projector headlights, power/heated side mirrors, fog lights, a rear spoiler, and 15-inch aluminum wheels. The available eSport Package comes with black-trim headlights, orange body stripes and mirrors, and unique 15-inch alloy wheels. A power moonroof is also available.

Under the Hood
The 500e is driven by a 111-hp, 83 kWh electric-drive motor mated to a single-speed automatic transmission with a push-button shifter that produces 147 pounds-feet of torque. It has a total EPA-estimated driving range of 84 miles and a combined 116 MPGe rating. The 500e can be recharged in less than 4 hours, connecting its 6.6 kW on-board charging module to a Level 2 energy source (220v). 

Inside, the 500e has a quieter cabin with more interior sound insulation than the regular 500. The center stack features the Uconnect 5.0 multimedia system with a 5-inch touchscreen, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and voice command. Leatherette upholstery, automatic temperature control heated front seats, 50/50-split folding rear seat, and remote keyless entry come standard.

Standard safety features include seven airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability control system, and hill start assist. It also has pedestrian warning system that emits distinctive sounds at speeds below 20 mph.
